Arborjet & Ecologel Solutions LLC, a leader in plant health care and water management solutions, announced they will once again be an official Silver sponsor of Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops program.
“We are proud to support Project EverGreen as their mission aligns with our philosophy of preserving green spaces, including lawns, trees, parks and communities in a sustainable way. We look forward to working with them to help support our troops during this especially challenging time. Helping them maintain their lawns is just one small way we feel we can make a meaningful contribution,” said Ecologel President Rick Irwin.
GreenCare for Troops is a need-based program for active-duty deployed service members. Last year, the program engaged close to 1,500 active volunteers, who helped more than 700 military families maintain their home lawns.
Since its inception, more than 11,000 military families and 6,000 contractors have registered for the program. Now during the COVID-19 pandemic, Project Evergreen is expanding the GCFT program to offer landscaping services to the healthcare heroes serving on the front lines of the pandemic.
“We feel fortunate to have Ecologel on board as a sponsor working toward the common goal of preserving ‘green spaces’ while supporting GreenCare for Troops across the country,” said Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen. “Our goal is to create environments that bring families, neighbors, and communities together. We build and support communities by shaping the natural world in such a way that our neighbors today, and future generations may enjoy and appreciate.”
As part of this sponsorship, Ecologel has committed to provide free Hydretain® products to help maintain the lawns and landscapes of deployed military personnel, while also helping them reduce their water bills.
Through GreenCare for Troops, military personnel can request lawn and landscaping services during their period of deployment. Lawn and landscape professionals volunteer to provide these services and once they are matched, volunteers receive access to coupons for free Hydretain® products.
Volunteers who have the capacity to help can visit the GCFT Cares for Our Healthcare Workers page for more information.
